Posted on 01/02/2009 7:20:53 AM PST by Slings and Arrows
Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin says both her 18-year-old daughter Bristol, who gave birth to son Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston on Saturday, and fiance Levi Johnston are working hard to balance schoolwork with their new parental obligations, People Magazine reported.
"You need to know that both Levi and Bristol are working their butts off to parent and going to school and working at the same time," the Alaska governor told the magazine in a phone message. "They are certainly not high school dropouts."
Any suggestion to the contrary "harms Bristol's reputation and Levi's reputation and their chances for good work opportunities," Pail said.

I’m not a “pinhead brigade” but a 50 year old Christian homemaker, and I DO think she could have used a better, nicer phrase than that. And I also think it’s terrible these two kids are STILL not married. These are not the actions of true Christian conservatives.
This is what 'they, MSM' want....to divide & conquer.
I was right here saying Obama was disgusting. Where were you?
Look ,these stories diminish Sarah. If she didn’t say this she needs to defend herself. If she did she needs to clean up her act. These kinds of stories are intended to make her look like white trash and they are working. I would love to see her in a national office....BUT [:^)] this stuff matters. The best way to make them leave her kids alone are to stop responding to the media. Give a public statement and move on.
I can’t tell if your being sarcastic or not.
I can’t tell if you are being sarcastic or not.
I love Sarah. These stories are doing just that though. They diminish her in the eyes of the country. They have to stop.
Shaking my head...
Our economy is tanking, we have a Marxist of questionable origins about to take the highest office in the land, India and Pakistan are rattling sabres at each other, Israel and Hamas are at it (go Israel!) and people are on here fussing about someone saying the word "butt."
Oh, to have the luxury, the simplicity of life to be concerned about things like that! LOL
Yep. That first baby is always a big awakening.
I agree, and it's not presidential either.
Who talked to what lady like what?
In the context of your post, it almost sounds as though you are chiding me. I have not gotten into the fray; I have merely made an observation on how silly it seems for people to get so heated up over something so trivial.
I love Sarah, sadly, if she cannot shake this type of article it won’t matter what we think. we need a viable candidate that can win, with conservative bonafides. while we all might like to think Obama will tank, he may not. I fear for us.
My mama would have indeed washed my mouth out for saying 'butt'...
She, and my grandmother would have supplied me with a more appropriate word.
That being said, I'm giving Sarah a pass (fwiw)
I'm more upset with Earthdweller's crude trashing of another Freeper.
They're probably hoping she'll kick the bucket.
No one is bent out of shape over the word butt, we are bent out of shape that it is in a headline with our lovely Sarah. It diminishes her and reeks of “white trash”. The reporter only called her to get that white trash story to begin with. Either she fell for it, or it’s a lie. Either way, this is hurting her chances of a national political career. THAT’s what we care about.
..but if we, as a society, lose the genteel courtesy of kind and appropriate words, we are losing on another kind of front.
Decorum should not be sacrificed to modern society.
In response to the phone calls that flooded in, he said he was just telling it "like it is".
That may be like it is, but he's even more tasteless than Schnitt.
The phrase, "their butts", wouldn't be surprising out of his yap, but perhaps folks in major league politics would be advised to drop the the term in favor of, perhaps, "their fannies"......LOL
